??? - The Shot of a Lifetime
First production Hunter F. 1 WT555 rolls beneath the Lancaster camera aircraft during what was very nearly photographer Cyril Peckham’s final shoot. Note the lack of the airbrake later fitted to the rear fuselage of production examples, and that the shell­case and ammunition link chutes are flush with the Hunter’s skin. The aircraft was retired from flying at the end of 1953, but still survives and is periodically put on display at the premises of Vanguard Storage in Greenford, West London.
